    Capt Stone Retrires From Army Service

    Master Sergeant Louis Stone who retired from active service from the United States Army on March 21, was honored with a garrison review of the Culver Military Academy cadet corps Sunday noon.

    Upon hid retirement Master Sergeant Stone was advanced on the retired list of the Army with the rank of captain, the rank which he held during the World War.

    Captain Stone has been on duty at the Culver Military Academy as an ROTC instructor since October 1919, following his return from duty in France and Germany.

    He enlisted in the 6th Calvary at Fort Des Moines, Ia. on February 5, 1909, and has been active since that time, serving his country, in the Philipiine Islands, and overseas in France and Germany.

    An excerpt from the General Order issued by Captain W. J. Eyerly, U. S. Army, Professor of Military Science and Tatics at Culver, announcing Captain Stone's retirement, reads as follows:
      Master Sergeant Stone's record of over 30 years' service has been loyal and faithful. His work as an instructor of Cavalry R.O.T.C. classes, with the various athletic squads including fencing and polo, and as chief clerk of the R.O.T.C. office has been competent and thorough, which has won him the confidence and admiration of the student body as well as the officers and men with whom he has worked. As a result of his excellent work and long period of service at the Academy his departure will be felt by many departments.


    Captain Stone has a host of friends among the Academy personnel, cadets, and alumni, and he caries with tim to his well-earned retirement the respect and best wishes of the command - April 5 1939 Culver Citizen
